Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Tuesday, 24 May 2011

Rolls-Royce has won its first order from Taiwanese airline, TransAsia Airways.

The airline has selected Trent 700 engines and TotalCare long-term service support worth a total of $150m. The engines will power two Airbus A330 aircraft to be delivered in 2012/2013.

Vincent Lin, Chairman, TransAsia Airways, said, As we enter a new era with our first widebody aircraft, we selected the Trent 700 for its proven performance and payload advantages coupled with the comprehensive maintenance cost assurance that TotalCare brings. These factors made Rolls-Royce the right choice for TransAsia Airways.

The Trent 700 is specifically designed for the A330 aircraft. More than 1,300 Trent 700s are now in service or on firm order, having captured over 75% of orders in the last three years.

TotalCare long-term service agreements, in place on 90% of Trent engines, are designed to minimise customer financial risk and enhance operational performance and reliability, allowing operators to concentrate on their core business.
